The weekend will include talks given by the Starmakers Stargazing Events astronomers, night sky observing with the help of the experts and their telescopes, with free hot drinks and a log-burning stove (if needed) available in our refuge.
Note that the experts are staying on-site and are available to ask advice all day, including helping you with the use of your own telescopes if you bring one.
The Geminids meteor shower is on too. It peaks on the 14th of Dec (100-120 meteors per hour) but should still be strong on the weekend.
